Parked at the west car park, marked as 'Bike Trails' on the map. Couldn't find the track I wanted so took the main one, which got there in the end. Lovely walk to this but to be honest I was shattered by now. Trig has had a narrow escape from a fallen tree. Found the track I should have took in the first place on the way back.

This was an uncomplicated visit. Parked at the Bike Trails car park and headed eastwards to find the pillar with two storm-blown trees nestling alongside, one of them just touching the pillar, but fortunately no damage. Cap in place with light lettering, and one s/h open. Took me 40 minutes in total.
